    A Twister pattern with little (or no) waste

    I found this tutorial on the "Fabrics & Quilts" blog. It's for a Twister quilt with little to no waste. I found it rather confusing, but then again... it doesn't take much to befuddle me... LOL! Maybe you'll understand it better than I did & will enjoy it...

    Basically, you are just squaring up the scraps and using them

    I saw something similar somewhere else. I'm doing a twister right now & going to use the extra pieces in the border.

    That is easy. I have the twister tool and never really understood how to use it.

    I bought the Lil Twister and June Tailor's Twist and Turn. I really plan on doing one of these--one day!

    There is waste with the Twister but this is certainly one way to utilize all the scrappy little piecings left from the cutting.....Thanks.

    Same here. I find the instructions it comes with confusing (granted, it doesn't take much to confound me, but... LOL!).

    Thank you!

    I am glad you liked our tute! The twister is a great little tool if you can get past sewing the quilt twice.

    If you have the larger ruler (for the 10" squares) your scraps from that quilt are usable in a "little sister quilt" using the smaller twister ruler.
